Sarah Hermes

Sarah’s connection to Conscious Capitalism began with reading John Mackey and Raj Sisodia’s keystone book, Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business. The tenets outlined in the book immediately resonated with her beliefs around the purpose and potential of free enterprise. In 2016, Sarah assisted Raj Sisodia and Nilima Bhat with the release of their book Shakti Leadership: Embracing Feminine and Masculine Power in Business, which launched at the Conscious Capitalism spring conference that year. Fueled by a desire to create a local community of like-minded, purpose-driven business leaders, Sarah is grateful to have had the opportunity to help start the Kansas City Conscious Capitalism Chapter.

As a producer at Lockton, Sarah works with clients to align their employee benefits and risk management strategies with their higher purpose as an organization. Viewed through the framework of Conscious Capitalism philosophies, her goal is to support her clients in recruiting and retaining the right people, fostering an authentic and culture and employment brand, and protecting their long-term financial sustainability. Growing up as the daughter of a small business owner in Kansas City, Sarah is passionate about supporting the “heroic spirit of business” and the positive ripples it creates.
